Classic Story Readers Level 5 link with B1 in the CEFR levels, and Preliminary in the Cambridge Exams. Stories at this level have a word count of 7,000-18,000 words. Overall page count is 68-136 pages. At launch, Level 5 consists of five titles: The Blue Diamond, The Prince and the Pauper, Pygmalion, Daddy-Long-Legs, and Around the World in 80 Days.
Level 5 readers are intended for children who have studied English for more than five years. Some titles are classed as ‘short reads’ and some as ‘long reads’. ‘Short reads’ suit less confident readers, ‘long reads’ suit more confident ones. You can also use the individual word count of each book to decide on the best reading order. Whatever level of reading confidence children have, the fascinating stories and enchanting illustrations will get them interested in following the storyline and enhancing their vocabulary.
